. >> thank you. which is why i don't think obama will have any problem with this. >> i think it helps him. >> he'll look like a strong, and just like he did a year ago, just like when he killed bin laden, he looks incredibly strong on foreign policy. and this will not provide a weak spot for him in the long run. >> mika, really quickly, i agree with you there. i don't think there's going to be a political fallout from it. >> yeah. >> i think one of the things that disturbs me so much is the fact that americans are not any more concerned about other americans being able to be targeted and killed without any due process. and i'll say it again because i can hear people saying, well, why didn't you say that about george w. bush? i did. i did on padilla. i did when there were americans whose constitutional rights were being eviscerated by what was going on during the bush era. i spoke out then. i'm speaking out now. but i'm frightened that more americans are not focused on this. >> so i also think what's fair is your frustration, if you have any, about the hypocrisy in terms of the reaction on

. mike, great to see you, big story today. thank you. >> thank you. jon: so for more on president obama's effort to unite senate democrats to help push through through his second term agenda, let's bring in our man juan williams. he is a fox news political analyst. what is going on hine closed doors? is this a little arm-twisting by the white house? what is this exactly, juan? >> it is arm-twisting, jon because right now the president is trying to get democrats in line for an alternative plan for spending cuts and some tax hikes that would avoid the sequestration set to hit march 1st. the idea here, jon, is that the economy is pretty fragile. we know from the end of last year when defense cuts took effect it had the effect much dragging down the economy during that last quarter. so the president wants to avoid that. he is saying we can't simply cut our way to growth. we have to have some investments in spending, for education and defense, for example. but he wants the democrats to come up with an alternative to this strong, across the board sequestration cut. jon: chris stirewalt pointe
. >> al, thank you. this morning lawmakers are getting nuances about why the obama administration believes it is okay to use drones to kill expected terrorists including americans. it's an issue that will be key at today's confirmation hearing for the president's pick for cia. michael isikoff is calling this story for us. michael, good morning. >> savannah, good morning. drone strikes, the obama administration's weapon of choice against terrorists are coming under scrutiny. after a disclosure justice department document obtained by nbc news this week that justifies the targeted killing of americans suspected of being top al qaeda leaders. for the first time today the white house is sharing the classified memo that lays out the legal basis for such strikes with members of the house and senate intelligence committees. the move comes at a crucial time as john brenan, president obama's nominee to be cia director, faces his confirmation hearing today on capitol hill. in the war over drone strikes, a major reversal from the white house. after years of ironclad secrecy, president obama directed t
. barbara, thank you. >>> the republicans have picked a rising star to respond to president obama's state of the union address next week. marco rubio will give the response in both english and spanish. the house speaker john boehner says rubio carries the party's banner in a way few others can. so does that mean he can also be the standard bearer in 2016? john king is here in "the situation room." john, how significant is this development? >> it's very significant. you mentioned he's a rising star. here's one of the reasons that it's significant. they announced this not only in english but in spanish as well. you mentioned 2016. marco rubio is thinking about 2016. but mitch mcconnell, the house speaker john boehner, they made this choice. sometimes there's a little bit of a debate, who should we choose. they said there was no debate. they think he's the right messenger at this time. they think he helps the republican party, wolf, in 2013 and 2014 begin, what they concede, is a very complicated and rebuilding process. number one, they think he's a good communicator. number two, he will tal

governor christie. [applause] [laughter] >> thank you for your service. i have some comments. you have said president obama believes is done carefully, deliberately and responsibly, we can be more transparent and still ensure our nation's security. i absolutely agree. the american people have the right to know whether government does on their behalf. consistent with our national security, the presumption of transparency should be the rule, not the exception. and the government should make as much information available to the american public as possible. so on the committee when and we as members of congress push hard for access to the legal analysis targeting americans using drones, for instance, it erodes the government's credibility by the american people. i want to say i'm grateful to the president for allowing members of this committee to brief review some of the information. this is an important first debt. there's much more to be done in that regard. you have heard that from my colleagues today. i have long believed our government also has an obligation to the american people to face
obama. brennan told the senate intelligence committee he's been told by his lawyer he's only a witness in those probes. >> michael isikoff, thank you. ron widen is a member of the intelligence committee and has pressed the white house for more information on its drone policy. senator, thank you for being with us. first yes, are you satisfied after saying the president was practicing secret law and stone calling, are you satisfied these memos are being released to some members of congress? >> this is an encouraging first step. and especially because it comes at a time when the lines have blurred between the military and the intelligence field and it's going to be so important to do robust congressional oversight in order on protect both our security and our liberty. also i'll make sure it leads to an expanded public right to know. >> let me ask you about the nomination of john brennan. you hinted you would pull out all the stops. does that mean you intend to block his nomination? shall. >> first of all, i never announced my position until we had a confirmation hearing. i did believe wha
